Twisted Innocence 
"Twisted Innocence"
Terri Blackstock

Holly Cramer’s past choices have finally caught up to her, but she never expected them to endanger her baby.
Though Holly’s stumbled through most of her adult life as a party girl, she longs to live a more stable life for her daughter. Then police show up to question her about the whereabouts of Creed Kershaw, Lily’s father. She has kept his identity a secret from friends and family—she never even told him about the pregnancy. Now he’s a person of interest in a drug-related murder case.
Determined to keep him out of their lives and turn him over to police, Holly uses her private investigating skills to search for him. But her bravado backfires when he turns the tables and takes her and the baby hostage. As desperate hours tick by, Holly realizes his connection to Leonard Miller—the man who has gunned down several members of her family. Creed claims he’s innocent and that Miller is after him too. His gentleness with Lily moves her, but she can’t trust a man who has held her at gunpoint . . . even if he reminds her so much of herself.
Dangers old and new threaten Holly and her baby, and lives are demanded as sacrifices for love. Through a complex web of mistakes and regret, redemption is the one hope Holly has left to hold on to.

Terri Blackstock's books are always full of suspense, twists n turns, romance and the unexpected.  "Twisted Innocence" was no different.  This book is a can't-put-down-page-turner, that will keep you up late at night reading it to find out what happens.  

This series focus's on three sisters and the disasters that have come their way.  But they stick together and remain united as a family.  They are there for each other and support each other through the ups n downs, blessings and mistakes of life.  This is how a family should be and reminded me of my sisters and me.   Although our personalities are not like the characters in the book, in the end we're still sisters and we're still family.  

I liked how Holly tried so hard to get her life back together and didn't give in to the temptation of her old life. (Something I didn't like was how much it talked about her feeding her baby.  Of course the baby needed to be fed, there's no reason to go on and on about it.)
She loved her baby too much.  She realized that God loves her even with her mistakes.  Which is always a great reminder.  God always loves us, no matter what!
